Afterschool program support of children’s social-emotional and behavioral health


This brief summarizes how five afterschool programs—representing diverse geographic regions, program settings, and served populations—view their roles and contributions to promoting young children’s SEBH. Findings were gathered through interviews with multiple program staff and observations of afterschool programs during two-day site visits. For an overview of the study, see the related brief entitled “Providing an Essential Service: An Overview of Afterschool Program Support of Children’s Social-Emotional, Behavioral, and Physical Health During Middle Childhood.” (author abstract)
